Jon Hamm on “Saturday Night Live”: Helpful hints from Don Draper

Jonhammsnl_2

Who knew Don Draper had a sense of humor?

By all accounts, “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm did a swell job as host of Saturday Night Live last night, even if he sounded like he had a slight head cold. I’m not gonna name names but one “Mad Men” insider I spoke with recently described Hamm, very lovingly, as being a kind of “big 15-year-old” with a sense of humor to match. He flexed a lot of comedy chops last night and appeared to be having a good time.

Among the highlights of the “SNL” seg was this clip below, “Don Draper’s Guide to Picking Up Women.”

This skit featuring Hamm’s “Mad Men” cohorts Elisabeth Moss and John Slattery probably could’ve been punchier, but Hamm saves it at the end with a spot-on spoof of the show’s trademark Draper-closes-the-deal speeches.
